It’s winter in Paris and the little Art Seeker saw for you the beautiful exhibition dedicated to the great Russian art collector Sergueï Chtchoukine at the fondation Vuitton.
The building is just gorgeous and brand new and really worth while to be seen!

Chtchoukine was a rich Russian art collector who thanks to a visionary gaze constituted one of the most incredible art work collection of artists of the 19th and 20th century and gave to Moscow the first modern art museum in the world.
As if to test their power and their capacity for resistance facing Cézanne ‘s self portrait he placed works that were really vivid proofs of the new avant-gardes.
In 1915,the russian collector decided to display portraits of himself next to his favorite artist.
He appears then next to his beloved artists looking at the viewver with his penetrating eyes!

Chtchoukine was a very mystic person who made a trip to Saint Catherine’s monastery in Sinaï.His own epiphanic feelings can be seen in the choice of his paintings and artists.
